Still agitated that BC is finished at this moment and I didn't get fusion frenzy 2. It's a fully Microsoft game so I really don't understand why that didn't happen. Need more party games on the One and I still to this day load up the OG fusion frenzy for great fun.

Dust off your Xbox 360. It's what you're gonna have to do to play all those games Microsoft missed. (Yes, I'm unhappy about it too.)

I'm still unclear on how the Telltale episode de-listings are supposed to work on Xbox One.  I own the season pass discs for Minecraft: Story Mode Season One and The Walking Dead: The New Frontier and the Back To the Future: The Game disc.  I downloaded all of the episodes for each today.  Was this a good idea, and should I keep these on my hard drive going forward?  Or will they always be available since I own the discs?  They don't take up that much space, but I might want to use the space for something else in the future.  I've seen so many conflicting responses when I Google search, so if someone can provide a good answer, it will be much appreciated.

So I preordered Samurai Showdown the day it hit the store for preorder... I used a combination of MS funny money and a little off my debit card. I received the order confirmation e-mail from Microsoft and it showed up in my ready to install list. For some reason this morning I get another order confirmation e-mail from Microsoft and a full charge to my debit card for $59.99 … Has anyone ever seen this before? What is going on here?

The Walking Dead games are safe because Skybound got the rights back and are keeping the games published. Everything else is up in the air as it all goes back to the respective franchise holders. It would be up to Microsoft to republish Minecraft and Universal (I guess?) to republish BTTF. If you want to play them, you need to keep them downloaded but you should be OK with the TWD.

Good pick since it's leaving Game Pass at the end of the month.

Did you get the Demon Hunter bundle?

Yup and that's the reason I got it since it was leaving game pass.

Thanks for the response.  I might delete The Walking Dead anyway since I've never seen the show or read the comic book.  Truthfully, these games aren't really my types of games.  But Back To the Future is one of my favorite movie series of all time, and I just downloaded Minecraft recently, so I'll be glad to see what the story is supposed to be behind that one.

Got rid of it when I finished all the Forzas. I'll just wait and see what happens when Scarlett comes out. Hopefully they come out guns blazing at launch and have a slew of the titles we all wanted newly optimized for the Scarlett

Nope, downloaded it just fine several days ago. Bought it through the website before hand, so it was in my ready to install list.




I'm really tempted on Division 2. Girlfriend put the buy price for Ultimate at $100, and it's $71.99 right now. Problem is, I worry we won't go back to the original if I buy now. We have the Gold Edition, and while we did reach end game, we never touched the DLC. I really want to get through the PvE content before starting 2. I just wonder if it will be that cheap again anytime soon.


You have the original Gold or 2? Im hoping the original. The Gold for 2 is 60, that's pretty good for being only 3 months past launch. Your patience is admirable wanting to stick with the original, but I say jump. Big gameplay difference.

Anyone having trouble getting Too Human to download from the marketplace? I keep getting the "Sorry... that request can't be completed right now" generic error.


Are you outside of the US? I am, and I had the same problem with Too Human until I used a VPN.

Technically Rock Band peripherals ARE supported via adapter (using mine for Rock Band 4), but the licensing kills it for Beatles Rock Band. Too bad, it’s pretty great. One of the reasons I keep my 360.

Yes, and the 360 disc version of Rock Band 3 is double-awesome since you can use customs.  In fact, you can even get customs from Beatles Rock Band to integrate into your main RB3 songlist.

There's a reputable seller in the trade forums selling it for $50 right now.  Go get it :)

$99 a piece? How many are there? Might have to tell the Mrs that I won't be able to pay rent next month...

It's a placeholder so people can download it. They don't want people to buy it.

So if anyone's looking for good games for Game Pass quests, I recommend The Turing Test for Achievement Hunter

This was going to be my next game to try for the 10 achievements. Tried Astroneer but stuck in the tutorial, looks bugged or something.

The tutorial in Astroneer is a pain and takes forever. I had to give up on that achievement because it took too long. The first couple achievements in guacomelee 2 take maybe 20-30 minutes. First couple bosses and when you learn to dodge do 10 dodges for another achievement.

Original. I played the Beta and I actually preferred the original gameplay to 2 honestly. Maybe it's the difference between end game gear in the original and beginner gear in the beta for 2 though. Those cool downs were rough. I liked my original turret that never had a cool down by the time I destroyed it.

Somehow I doubt this seller takes MS funny money. :razz:

I'm still tempted about grabbing this but also am confident it will be a GwG in a few months. I grabbed the VIP pass when it was on sale awhile back, just debating how important the dlc and car pass is to me.

The only game I got from the E3 sale was NBA 2K19. I'm always reluctant to complain about sales, but I gotta say this one really lacked any OMG INSTABUY gems.

Let's hope the summer sale is a banger!


Edit: Then again, I'd say deal on UGP made up for the lack of spectacular discounts.

From what I can tell, the answer to your question depends on the game. Some games have disc versions with all the content on them, while others will become completely unavailable once they are de-listed. Here is a community created guide from TA to help with this:

I got my 10 in Guacamelee 2. Took about ... 2.5-3 hours? Not super super quick, but it's actually a fun game, so that helps.

I bought nothing. Considered the Genesis collection but I already own it on PC, so I could hardly see the point. Bon voyage, surprisingly crappy yearly sale!

No worries, that's what we're here for. It can take a few days for you to receive credit. 

 

 

I think at least one achievement I was never given credit for but was able to get 10 in Metro anyway.  Got my 1000 points.  Also did the download a game through the app as well for 200 points.
